presidential debates, to tell obama and romney when they're both wrong? >> meanwhile, bob dole is talking about life after losing a presidential election. the republican pinned an article in "the washington post," saying that in washington, losing an election is viewed as, sort of like death. he went on to say, quote, sure, losing an election hurts, but i've experienced worst. and at an age where every day is precious, brooding over what might have been is self-defeating. and sarah palin says no to "dancing with the stars." why? well, the former vice presidential nominee calling herself a, quote, klutz. meanwhile, palin's daughter, bristol, is about to be on the show for a second time. >>> up next, george zimmerman's attorney talking to a group of supporters. who are they? find out after the break. and closing arguments in september. what mitt romney and president obama have to say right now. this is a saturday afternoon and you are watching msnbc. the place for politics. i have a cold, and i took nyquil, but i'm still stubbed up.

in next week's debate. bob and senior political analyst mark halperin joining me now. bob, you've done a lot of debate prep over the years, memorable the lloyd bentsen debate. >> that was the first one i helped in, but i've done a lot more since then. >> a good one liner in that one for sure. >> the one liner is very interesting. you can bet that in these debate preps people are looking for the line and what happens with these candidates is under pressure they tend to default to what they're saying out on the campaign trail and what -- in 1988, the benson prep team knew -- >> against dan quayle. >> who became vice president, that he had a tendency to go around justifying himself by saying he had as many years in the congress as jfk did when elected president. that violates number one my primary rule in politics which is don't compare yourself to jfk or reagan, you're no, not going to come off well. it gave benson an opening. he didn't say it until the fourth time asked about his experience by tom brokaw. the first three times he had a different answer and i think he felt the fourth tim
with a lobbyist? it doesn't make sense. that's my comment. host: our next call is bob on our line for independents. good morning, bob. came yeah, i live in sacramento, california, and we have undivided government here for a long time, except for when schwarzenegger tried to come in, and the results were disastrous. of course, the unions and democrats and so forth did anything they could to get them in line. if you want to see an undivided government for a long period of time with lots of new regulations and businesses leaving, like campbell's soup is leaving, closing down here in sacramento, california. comcast is closing their call center here, just in the paper yesterday. and another one i can't think of. but you're going see what's going to happen. the tax-paying businesses will leave the state and move elsewhere, and i don't know how they're going to get by. i'm 78 years old. if i was a little younger, i'd pull out of this place, and i've been here all my life. in fact, i was in business here for a while. host: hey, bob -- caller: i do not want to see the undivided government with the liberals
with security and some sort of visa problem. this is unheard of. so, senator bob corker and joe lieberman among others, they want answers from clapper about why it's happening. >> dave: to the point at that tony schaeffer made on our program yesterday, he's worked with the fbi, some of the toughest and highly technically trained individuals on the planet. comfortable going into hostile zones like benghazi, it must not be an internal reason, it must be someone else they can't go in. >> clayton: bee seeds the tactffac tactffac fact-- besides the fact that libya is a free country and not the hot son that-- as it's unfolding and discussions about james clapper on the show this morning, who is james clapper we'll taking a look at his record. he made headlines in 2010 when asked about that london terrorist attack by diane sawyer and appeared he didn't know what had happened or unfolded. take a listen. >> london, how serious is it? any implications that it was coming here, and any of the things they have seen coming here? >> and-- i was surprised you didn't know about london, director clapper. >> oh,
his campaign, gop donors may abandon him like they did bob dole in 1996. romney faces the very real prospect that republican donors super pacs and other parts of the gop support structure will towards helping him and towards a last-ditch senate majority and a senate house majority. >> the problem that mitt romney has, he now has less than 40 days to turn this thing around. this is a man who has been running for president for six years and now it boils down to 40 days, three debates, one more if you include the vice presidential debate to try to convince the american people who are now really paying attention that he is the person to replace president obama in office. and it just doesn't seem like that it's working. again, we've got 40 day. less than 40 day. so anything can happen. after all, this is politics. but it seem highly unlikely. >> now, erin, but at the same time, isn't it a little kind of cynical for some of the republicans to act like it's just romney and not the ideas and the policies of the republicans? because i'm starting to see a strategy here of sacrifice romney but

and virginia governor bob mcdonald are going to iowa, and chris christie and scott walker are in new hampshire, but they're not there to campaign for mitt romney, are they? >> no, they're not. they're there preparing for 2016, which is probably the republican party's best bet at this point. but this is really interesting. i think that the folk on the right who are scared about this are actually right, that pollsters are actually interacting with people who are more progressive, more centrist, and less identifying with what we think of now as the republican party. that's just a state of reality. the republican party is shrinking, so by definition, that means that pollsters are going to encounter folk who don't necessarily agree with the radical ways the party is constructed. we've been chuckling all day about this sam jackson ad, but the ad reflects the fact that people are waking up to the reality that mitt romney simply isn't a really credible or very, very competent politician. and all these gaffes and all these mistakes continue to reinscribe that fact. >> to both of you, we have an interes
was inspired by book that i'm sure is familiar to many of you called the brethren by scott armstrong and bob woodward, really a great book, first real behind the scenes book of the supreme court. and 15, the theme of the book was also justices, regardless of politics couldn't stand were in burger. they thought he was at pompous jerk. that sort of contention has been the rule more than the exception of the history of the supreme court. i don't know how many of you have had the misfortune of your of a chassis from sir from 191 1914-1941 named james mcreynolds was such an appalling anti-semi to use to get up and leave the conference room whenever justice brandeis or justice cardozo would speak. william o. douglas, i can take was a liberal one summer had a terrible car accident, drove his car off a cliff, and the first question i but had back then in the court was whether lewis -- where was frank-footer at the time? they hated each other so much they thought frankfurter might have driven him off.
